REVIEW: Tackling mass media and mass ignorance
Review of Dateline Earth: As if the planet mattered, by Kunda Dixit
Review of Dateline Earth: As if the planet mattered, by Kunda Dixit. Manila: InterPress.
Former Interpress regional editor Kunda Dixit's provacatively titled book Dateline Earth: Journalism As If The Planet Mattered, provides regional journalists with a timely global view that makes a mockery of dry old company balance sheets. 'Development should lead to human progress but it doesn't always' says Dixit. 'Journalists are a crucial link to the feedback loop ensuring that improvements in the quality of life can be sustained and do not permanently damage nature.'
